After a crazy winter in so many parts of the world, we are so ready to turn our thoughts to summer vacation. 
Now is the time to start planning your summer yacht getaway and we’ve got 5 top yacht destinations to start planning for now that will get you off your bingewatching, umm, couch and on deck, heading for paradise.

1. New England

IDEAL TIME TO CHARTER:  June – September

Discover quintessential New England by chartering your own private luxury yacht. Cast off from world-class historic cities like Boston and Portland, or from the yacht-friendly towns along Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Newport or the Hamptons.

Explore diverse islands, warm pristine beaches, spectacular marine life, gulf stream-warmed waters, beachcombing and historic colonial-era seaside towns along this spectacular coastline treasure.


Leave everyday worries in your wake as you set sail in this glorious playground. Sip a tropical concoction at the world renowned Basil’s Bar in Mustique as the sun slides into the sea.
Visit the private paradise of Mayreau,  the quiet Caribbean as you imagine it: untouched, uncrowded, no airport, no cars. Salt Whistle Bay has the epitome of a perfect beach – shared by a local population of less than 100. 
Lying in blissful sunshine off the northeast coast of Spain are the Balearic Islands of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentara, where you can enjoy an extended summer. This is the perfect place to lounge on the beach by day and party into the small hours of the morning.
This region’s rich multicultural architecture history fascinates photographers from around the world. For the culinary enthusiast, we have three words: Meat. Cheese. Wine. Home to savory Catalan cuisine traditions, the rich and varied seafood bounty includes lobster, while local pork and Sopressata sausage are also popular.   READ MORE
Take a step back in time to the Mediterranean of yesteryear when you take a private yacht cruise vacation in Croatia. Home to seven distinctive UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Croatia also has miles of unspoiled Adriatic islands, coastline and historic ports. 
Visit the walled city of Dubrovnik, whose Old Town is a UNESCO site, and Hvar, known for its aromatic lavender fields. Make sure to sample some of the local wines during shore excursions or on board. There are many itineraries that are offered on your floating hotel.  READ MORE
5. Alaska
IDEAL TIME TO CHARTER: Mid-June – September
Alaska, pristine and mesmerizing, is North America’s last frontier. Home to glistening glaciers, narrow fjords, snow-capped mountains and lush rain forests, Alaska is a nature lover’s paradise. Discover incredible wildlife, including bald eagles, brown bears, humpback whales, sea lions and Dall’s porpoises.
